Weed Warriors are volunteers from the community. Students and adults participate in projects that positively effect the environmental health of our neighborhoods and our public areas, like parks, trails, and open spaces.
Weed Warrior workshops and projects offer
participants the opportunity to learn about invasive noxious weeds that wreak havoc to our environment, and the opportunity
to experience “hands on” activities in environmental stewardship.
The Weed Warrior program imparts an awareness of local
weed issues and the need for environmental stewardship. Projects include invasive weed assessment, removal, and habitat restoration using native species plants and trees that stabilize the environment after the invasive weeds are removed. In Weed Warrior projects, today’s youth, who
are tomorrow’s citizens, civic leaders, and environmental stewards of the next generation, experience
activities in the local community while learning what it means to be an environmental
The Newcastle Weed Warrior program invites all ages to participate in the projects, events, and meetings. The program develops a sense of
connection to and responsibility for the natural landscape,
thus empowering community volunteers to help shape the environmental health of their public places. We encourage everyone to get involved, and challenges all members of the community to become part of
the solution to the invasive weed problem.
